Fostering Further is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children in foster care, families, and caseworkers in central Ohio. With more than 300 kids currently in care, there are all kinds of ways to help us in our mission. Find out how you can get involved!


Kids in foster care deserve the same opportunities as other kids their age. Their involvement in school, sports, music, and extracurricular activities gives them a sense of normalcy and improves their academics, behavior, and identity development.

Foster families are not reimbursed for these “extras”, and that’s where our community has a chance to step in and help!

Thanks & Testimonials

“I realized that this was her chance to feel a part of something bigger, part of a team. I think this has done more for her than all the therapy she’s had so far, and I am truly grateful for that. Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving her this chance.”
